ABSTRACT
Tsunami kill many human beings and seriously damage economic activities, such as the tsunami caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. It is very important to  develop useful modeling and simulation methods for tsunami waves in order to perform the planning and design for the community development and the prevention of disaster. The visualization is also important to understand the power of tsunami and to improve the consciousness of disaster  prevention. Recently, the visualization using the virtual reality (VR) technology is becoming more popular for numerical simulations.

In this presentation, the modeling, simulation and visualization methods are presented for tsunami waves. The stabilized finite element methods are employed for 2D and 3D tsunami simulations based on the shallow water equation and Navier-Stokes equation. In order to realize an efficient tsunami simulation, a combination method using 2D and 3D models is presented. We also propose a visualization system linked to the evacuation simulation using virtual reality technology to understand the power of tsunami and the importance of the evacuation. The present modeling, simulation and visualization methods are shown to be useful tools to realize the high quality computing for large scale tsunami simulation.
